How Footwear Should Fit

How Your Boots Should Fit.

Mid 19th Century footwear has a long tapered toe.

You should have at least a thumb's breadth of

room in front of your big toe.

From the outside your shoes or boots will look

longer than they really are on the inside.  As

you wear your shoes or boots they will shorten

in length.  This is  normal for mid-19th century



Boots and some bootees can slip up and down

on your heel when new. As they are worn they

will "set" to your foot and the slipping decrease.

 Heel before it "sets" to the foot.
